Mercedes and Alpine are the latest teams to confirm their launch plans ahead of the 2024 season, meaning more than half of the F1 grid have now done so.

Slotting in a couple of days after the Williams and Kick Sauber outfits, Alpine will stage what they have described as a ‘motorsports season launch’ for their F1 and World Endurance Championship operations on February 7.

Alpine, who finished sixth in the 2023 constructors’ standings, will be adding to their F1 programme with an assault on the hypercar class of the WEC – Mick Schumacher having been signed as one of their drivers.

One week later, and coming just after Aston Martin and Ferrari, the Mercedes W15 is set to break cover on February 14 via a digital launch event broadcast live from Silverstone.

It is a car the Silver Arrows hope will bring them back into contention after their run of eight successive constructors’ titles came to an end in 2022, with just one race victory recorded over the last two campaigns.
